Anyone Else Love Reading Raymond Carver?

  1. Any blades read Raymond carver? Favorite stories?
     
  2. I've read most of his stuff. Some of his stories are dull (particularly his early ones) but the rest are amazing. I really like Where I'm Calling From and Cathedral. My favorite is probably What We Talk About When We Talk About Love. I've probably read that story 8 times. I've never read any of his poetry, though.
     
  3. I haven't read his poetry either though I will likely check it out soon. 'what we talk about' was good, I liked it but read it for a class and maybe thats why I didn't enjoy it as much as the collection of stories I'm reading now, 'will you please be quiet, please'. I will have to read 'What We Talk About When We Talk About Love' again.
     
    I have a few favorites by him but Cathedral has to be #1
